Like any good subject of a jazz biopic (or sports film), what this little venue lacks in class it makes up for in heart. Most of the week, The New Apartment Lounge is simply a Chicago dive bar, but Tuesday nights light up with the sounds of Von Freeman and his band, along with dozens of other jazz hopefuls, vying to sit in with the legendary tenor sax player’s ensemble. The music starts around 10 p.m. on Tuesdays and the drinks are always cheap (there is a one-drink minimum). Stop by for a taste of something out of Chicago legend.
